Tweets of the Week: FlowerPower rules ok

Been a bit hit or miss lately with Tweets of the Week and for that I apologise. Life sometimes leaves little time for swimming the Twitterstream. But I couldn’t let Michal Kwiatkowski‘s win on Sunday go undocumented.

They’re behind you!

My #KwiatKrush made a sneaky – yet audacious – move six kilometres from the finish to take the rainbow jersey. Although it did look like he was going to lose it right on the line. But that was only the camera angle.

This is why he won.

How livid was I that BBC decided to let Rob Hayles and Jonathan Edwards talk utter bollocks while the podium presentation was going on. And Michal cried! And I MISSED IT! #Raging

But what about the others?

The VelvetSamurai™ was in fact the InvisibleSamurai. Didn’t even see him in the race.

PhilGil, on the other hand, was one of the few to really animate the race.

And he had one of the best national kits.

But what about My Beloved Fabs? Didn’t go so well … >sad face<

Giant-Shimano has a new sponsor. They will be known as Giant-Alpecin next year. Yes, Alpecin, the German caffeine shampoo. The ArgoSunGod‘s hair should be more luxuriant than EVER!
